Lot 265 - 2000 Mercedes-Benz E240 Elegance
|Odometer reading||60,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,276|
Styled by Steve Mattin under the guidance of Bruno Sacco, the second generation (W210) E-Class ushered in a new design language for Mercedes-Benz. Debuting in June 1995, its distinctive, quad oval headlight visage soon became a marque staple. While careful wind tunnel profiling enabled the saloon version to boast a drag coefficient of just 0.27. Accumulating seventy plus awards for occupant safety, design, environmental compatibility and efficiency over the course of its seven-year production cycle, the W210 could be had with a range of straight-four, straight-five, straight-six, V6 and V8 engines allied to manual or automatic transmission. Customers could thus specify their E-Class as everything from a frugal, diesel-powered airport taxi through to a petrol-guzzling super saloon.
This example is presented in Green/Black with Napa light grey leather interior. It comes with all the usual Mercedes-Benz luxuries such as electric seats, air conditioning, electric windows, good stereo and a very good service history showing servicing being carried out in good intervals and all at the same Mercedes-Benz garage in Hemel Hampstead, with many invoices showing the servicing of which the last service carried out was within the last month by the present owner. Its smooth V6 engine is mated to an automatic gearbox and with only just over 60,000 miles covered, this is still a great luxury saloon which exudes quality and provides wonderful comfortable travel.
